Interviews with Tom online

Recommended Posts

We all love Tom :) I've been searching for a copy of dark country too no luck ! :(

 

Yeah, it's mainly going to be available online. Though, I just saw it at a store (f.y.e.) last week. Whenever I find a copy, I always move it towards the front so others can find it easily. And if it's trapped under a pile of movies in a bin, I always place it on top. So keep searching/digging for it, & it might just pop up. Or stop looking, & then you'll really find it. ;)

It is a great interview, but don't sell yourself so short. Your interview was more fan inclusive. You let a lot of people be a part of your Q&A, which makes it feel more personal. So with your interview, Tom wasn't just answering questions; he was answering our questions. :)

Geoff, how did you find this podcast? You made my evening and even many more evenings to come.

I am completely blown away, so happy. An unexpected bubble of fresh air !

What a luxury to hear Thomas speak about Carné, Melville, Prévert, Belmondo, Delon, Arletty, Gabin! He even goes back to Murnau! I am impressed by his enthusiasm and preparation. It feels as if he had found a dusty treasure box from my youth and had opened it for me tonight. Each piece inside the box is inspected, respected and treasured. Those movies are the ones my parents grew up with and as a teenager they showed me most of them (that I absolutely want to see again now). Some others I had only heard of and not seen, so my shopping list is prepared !

As a child I was completely in love with Belmondo, mainly due to his "fun" movies (L'homme de rio, Les tribulations d'un chinois en chine...). Last month I was in Paris and watched a documentary about his life (he might not stay very long with us anymore. But with this guy you never know, he waved away death more than once already) and they explained how (and why!) Belmondo and Delon couldn't bear each other and the on-going rivality during the shooting of Borsalino. Two tigers in one cage ...!

Besides, just listening to him without having the video and the face is such an interesting experience. It feels as if he's sitting with us. There would never have been such an opportunity in the frame of a "standard" interview. If possible, Thomas has gone five steps up in my esteem.

Well I can't claim to be an aficionado of French crime films but it's always a pleasure to listen to anybody talk about an interest so passionately and knowledgeably.  This is obviously a subject close to Tom's heart and you can understand why he is drawn to the roles he's played, many of them seem to be along the lines of not necessarily doing the 'right' thing, but doing it for the right, or at least justifiable, reasons - not just kicking over the traces for the hell of it.  Enjoyable listening, thanks for the link Geoff 👍

Yes you can understand a bit more about how the look of DC came about and choosing roles like "Malone" plus I know Thomas has written several scripts along the genre that hopefully we will see the light of day on at some point.

Dear forum,

you may have noticed a certain enthusiasm on my side about Tom's Podcast. After listening to it I was left with an order of roughly 10 DVDs and the will to organize a retrospective at home during the coming months. But I also had a problem: this podcast is ssoooo freaking dense that I would have been unable to find the right spot within these 90 minutes in order to let other people hear the appropriate commentaries. Please notice the use of the past tense and call me crazy... but I feel I am in good company here, so I fear no shame and here it is:

The movies that made me
Thomas Jane

01:27:50 Back to "Daybreak" 4/4

01:29:00 "Stranger on the third floor" (1939, Director: Boris Ingster, Cast: Peter Lorre, John McGuire) ==> Origin of the film noir in the US https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stranger_on_the_Third_Floor

01:36:30 "The narrow margin" (???) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Narrow_Margin

 

Well well well ... I sure hope it will motivate people to see one or two of those movies. I will start with "Le doulos", because I have never seen it (!) and Belmondo plays in it 😎 Second wind comes next and then I may switch to US noir movies at the end of the list that I really do not know yet.

Enjoy!

Ariane
